user reviews of the Red Lion Inn, Axminster

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

according to the Whatpub web site this place should open at 11.00.
I was here last Saturday at 11.20 and not a sign of it opening.

We visited three pubs in Axminster and this one was by far the best.
It is a fairly large modern place which was spotless.
The drinks prices are some of the lowest i have ever seen with a very decent pint of John Smiths at only £1.90!
All the drinks were very cheap if more pubs could sell at these prices many more places would survive i'm sure.

Enjoyed a cracking pint of Marsons Pedigree here recently and at 2/pint you wouldnt expect much, but thats not a happy hour deal its the current price. It seems Enterprise Inns are having a go at breaking into the Axminster pub scene (not difficult). Food limited to basic pizza, burgers or sarnies at the moment but manager says he wants to expand this offering shortly.

After a mixed past few years, the pub is clean and tidy and
friendly if a little quiet and lacking in atmosphere. Gents needs a bit of a sort out, but ok. Big screen telly (but no prem sports due to excessively greedy Sky pub pricing).

Given the standard of the other seriously dismal pubs in Axminster (which deserves better being a fairly busy westcountry market town with mainline railway connections), the Lion is worth supporting in the hope it will flourish.
